Live in a new Larkfleet home… before you buy it!

Undecided about which home to buy? Wouldn’t it be great if you could spend a few days in the property of your choice before making a final decision?

Well now you can, thanks to an innovative ‘try before you buy’ scheme introduced by developer and housebuilder Larkfleet Homes. The offer is available to anyone aged 55 or more who is interested in properties in Lincolnshire, Rutland and Cambridgeshire.

The ‘test-run’ opportunity is available on selected properties in Oakham, Bourne and Eye, near Peterborough. It gives potential buyers a chance to experience the quality of a Larkfleet home and to sample life in the local community.

Here are some details about the places and properties available:
